DR, PACS and Voice Recognition together provide image acquisition-to-reporting solution

  • Agfa HealthCare uniquely meets the workflow requirements from image acquisition to study reporting and dictation of the United States Navy
  • DX-D DR systems provide high quality images with MUSICA 2image processing
  • Use of TalkStation voice recognition enables streamlined reporting and dictation from anywhere, regardless of where exam was generated or accessed, significantly simplifying physician workflow

Agfa HealthCare announced that the United States Navy has awarded the company a contract to upgrade 30+ ships in the U.S. Navy fleet to the latest Digital Radiography (DR) solutions with Agfa HealthCare's DX-D 400, DX-D 100, and other systems. To be used along with Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) and TalkStation voice recognition system for diagnostic reporting, this end-to-end solution will provide the United States Navy with improved, efficient workflow from image acquisition to study reporting.

The comprehensive system will enable streamlined workflow from image acquisition to image interpretation by the radiologists using IMPAX PACS at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Walter Reed uses the IMPAX PACS and TalkStation for dictation and reporting and will now be able to send and receive full reports as well complete patient records, further streamlining reporting the process by allowing radiologists to easily dictate, edit, code and sign reports within minutes.
